A Maw oil-well explosive, called
"Carbonite," is, according to the Revue
Indnstrielle, being largely manufac-
tured in Germany. The composition
of the explosive is not definitely
known, but it has a sandy looking,
plastic 'appearance. It is exploded
with a fulminating cartridge, and is
two and one half times as powerful
as ordinary black powder. The ex
plosive action is slow and conoe1
quently the rock is not as badly
woken up. Heat, oold and moisture
of the air have no indaenco on it an
der ordinary circumstances, The ex
plosion leaves no residue and the
gases are harmless. A cartridge of
carbonile burns with a blue llame,
when placed in the firo, without ox
iloding. When struck with a ham
mer it explodes, after a short time, at
the point struck, but the explosion is
not communicated to the rest of tho
In the Southern local option con
tests, the issue is always briefiy stated
in the phrase, "Wet or dry? " which
jeing both apt and witty has an
esoterio meaning perhaps not gener-
ally apprehended. Prima facie, it
proposes a choice between drinks or
no drinks, but over and above this it
means that there is going to be ti
struggle in whioh everybody will
íave to take sides. It .is a homely
metaphor derived from the old game
of "town ball," in which tho lot for
sides was oast by spittiog on a chip
or the "paddle" and tossing it up
with the question, "wet or dry?"
Georgia wit may lack the Attic flavor,
but it has the Spartan quality of say
ing a good deal < in a fow words.—
Socialists have charged that in
Germany the proportion of female
ábor was increasing, and that its
prevalence was injurious to health
and morals. The report of the Ger
man factory inspectors give denial to
the charge. In the majority of dis
tricts the proportion of femalo labor
has remained practically unchaugod
or a long series of years; in Ihe ma
;ority of employments no distinctly
injurious effects are reported. We
Would like for some ono to point out
a solitary charge yot made by tho
socialists against society that has not
on sober inquiry fallen to the ground.
Accobdikg to the Chicago Arboitor

you will1 see which way Ihe cat la irolng to
jdmp. I can't state positively that lloulauger
made Mackay's acqqaintauu'e right here, bqt
i do know that later on, when Maokay went
to Paris, the xeneral and lie' were on very
good terms. Things had gou Very well with
Houlanger. On his return to France from
America ho was Intrusted with the olllce of
director of Infantry under the miulster of war,
end lu that position hud done much toward
ttje reorganization of the army, Then in 18S4
be took coitimaud of a division In Africa and
transformed the expedition of forcé Into one
of occupation at Tunis. Lastly, upon the
formation of the De Freycinet cabinet his
great popularity became evident. Now, as to
what passed between the mdllonaire
and the military man I can not of course,
say with exact detail. Hut I have
beard It more than whispered that the
millionaire was let into the couiidenue of the
military inan, and that the plans
aud aspirations of tho soldier
were kuown, It not shared In, by the
successful miner. Now. then, let's put the
case hypothetically, as the luwyers say. llera
was a Frenchman, as ambitious as tlioy make
them, aud with the chief point of ambition on
the settlement of the old feud between úer-
many and France. Helng a Frenchman, too,
be was in all probability—to put It mildly—a
speculator. Here, too, waa another man with
millions at his command. A war, we will say,
might ho precipitated—war whose end or ex-
tent no man could foresee. It would, however,
tie a great Kuro|>esn war, and someone would
have to feed the armies. Not only would the
armies have to be fed, but they would have to
be fed at any price. Now, tlion, suppose the
arrautrornents between the two went so far as
to Include a fixed scheme by the ono mau to
bring about this war. All that tho other would
have to do would be to corner all the wheat,
and be would be master of the situation, and
every grain would tw golden. To come back
now to the facts, the Goblet ministry came In,
and Boulanger was still minister of war. Mr.
Mackay, or the bank of Nevada, or Dresback
and Kosenfeld, or the wheat clique, or what-
ever you may like to style It, did tje^ln buylna
up all the whoat he could lay hands on, until
It looked as though ha were actually attempt-
ing to cornor the food-stull of tho world.
Everything looked lovely. In France It had
gone so far that about May last a mobilization
of tho troops was on the tapis, and Germany
was on pins and needles as to how threaten-
ing that massing of tho soldiers along hoi
frontier might bo. In Sau Francisco th«
wheat was being bought up right aud left;
the price was forced up to a figure thai
msde conservative men shake their bends, bul
still the purchases went on. Then came th<
collapse. The French people them-
selves grew frightened. Houlanger was de-
clared to be a dangerous man, the Rouvlei
cabinet was formed, and Boulang«r was left
out in the cold. The imminence of war wai
•verted, and wheat, In 'perfect sympathy,
mark you, began to go down. The first crash
really came then, and though It was staved
off a few weeks you have seeu that the In
evitable did take place."
